Go for the gold in bed
Olympic athletes have a secret that most mere mortals just don't get. And it's the same secret that can make you a gold-medal superstar in bed.  I'm talking about oxygen.  Olympians understand that every cell in your body is designed to burn oxygen. Cut back on oxygen and all cellular processes slow down. You start to become tired or short of breath. So, high concentrations of oxygen in every cell in your body makes the difference between a gold medal and an "also ran."  It's the same for you in just about every part of your life. With plenty of oxygen, your body pulses with energy....

Americans Are Having Less Sex Than They Used To
American adults of every age group are having less sex than they were a generation ago, suggests a study published Tuesday in the Archives of Sexual Behavior. Specifically, Americans born in the 1980s and 1990s are having less sex than those born in the 1960s and 1970s had at the same age ― despite their reputation for relying on dating apps to set up sexual encounters and preferring hookup culture to traditional courtship. The study, which included data from 26,000 adults, compared sexual activity among Americans in the late 1990s to the early 2010s. It found that adults had sex an average nine fewer times per year...

We've Been Seriously Underestimating Cervical Cancer Risks
Women, especially black women, might face a greater chance of dying of cervical cancer than previously thought, according to a study published Monday in the journal Cancer. Estimates from previous studies may have been artificially low because they included women who had had hysterectomies, a procedure to remove the uterus. The new study suggests that black women are dying at a rate 77 percent higher, and white women are dying at a rate 47 percent higher, than researchers had previously thought. After adjusting for hysterectomies, cervical cancer killed 10 out of every 100,000 black women and approximately 5 out ...

Male Circumcision and Self-Determination
Every so often the practice of neonatal male circumcision becomes a news item, typically when some medical association issues a statement on the practice. Last week it was the turn of the Danish Medical Association, which recommended the practice be stopped. Prominent among the reasons cited for this conclusion was that the procedure permanently alters a child's body, something which should not be done, the Danish doctors argue, without the informed consent of the person whose body is affected. The Danish doctors' recommendations are in line with most Europeans' thoughts on this issue. By contrast in 2012, the American Ac...
